Hollow trunk portion of Atti [Kannada]: Ficus racemosa
About 10 feet high from the ground, Height < 2cm, habitat close to the river cauvery.

Farmers say these tiny white mushroom kinds are edible when it is white. 
The moment they start turning blue they are non edible. 

Would like to more on these pretty little one's.

Dear Raghu ji,
As far as my knowledge this mushroom looks like Coprinus sp to me. Because of its cap structure and also because it is edible when young but as soon as it matures to turns blue black and start molting down fast hence not suitable for food. I think it can be Coprinus comatus.
